St. Philomena, Filomena, was believed to be a Greek princess, and today is a catholic saint and an important saint of the Vodou tradition. Her feast day is August 11th.
Little is known about the life of Philomena whose body was discovered in 1802 in a catacomb of St. Priscilla in Rome. On the tomb rested three stones with the words LUMENA PAX TE CUM FI with symbols of 3 arrows, 2 anchors, a palm, and a lily. However, it's been suggested that the stones were in the wrong order and rearranging these stones would read PAX TE CUM FI LUMENA, meaning "Peace Be With You, Filumena". The young girls head had been fractured. A vial of what appeared to be reminiscences of dried blood was found in the tomb as well, which also leads theories in the direction to support the facts along with the symbols on the stones, that she suffered martyrdom. It is believed that St. Philomena was around the age of 14 at the time of her death.
She is the patroness of youth and babies. She can be prayed to for protection and blessings for children. Burn a pink or green candle on a Saturday to help with desperate situations, problems with children, unhappiness in the home, the sick, selling real estate, food for the poor and mental illness. Philomena is a favorite of single mothers. Her symbol is an anchor. Set sweet cakes, candies, sweet drinks, colas, toys, red and white braided ropes, pink flowers, lilies, perfumes, make up.
Set an image out for her, light her a candle, and give her offerings. Recite a prayer and your petition to her.

The Conjured Saint Ritually-Blessed Oils are crafted to enhance and promote ritual-working, spell-working and personal intent. These spiritual recipes can be used to anoint the body or tools, burned in an oil burner, or added to ritual baths.
Our sacred oils are hand-blended and bottled into “metaphysical battery-packs” of concentrated magick. Each oil contains its own spiritual life force (the soul), that is harnessed by harvesting Mother Nature’s blessings. Plants are alive, and everything that lives has a soul like essences. Roots, seeds, leaves, and petals all contain a specific metaphysical signature that is captured and magickally-infused into the oil that corresponds to each botanical’s intent and purpose.
The botanicals used are specifically selected by The Conjured Saint from our sacred, blessed garden and then hand-blended with blessed crystals to create powerful, divine oils. Crystals, like botanicals, are living beings, charged with a universal life-force. Harnessing this energizing life force into the oils allows them to continually recharge themselves.
The Conjured Saint oils are designed to endure through the use of Vitamin E and premium-selected grapeseed oil, which preserve their sacred shelf life. Blessed under the moon during the appropriate moon cycle, holy days of religious days of obligation, and according to the correct energy of the days of the week, each oil is its own life-force in a vial, ready to be used to enhance spell-work. The Conjured Saint oils are adaptable to any spiritual practice.
Botanically-infused on the appropriate days to enhance their properties, the oils are then blessed on a sacred altar under the watchful eyes of the saints and steeped with the powerful crystals that harvest the energy and vitality of Earth’s divine magick. The inclusion of crystals in The Conjured Saint’s recipes provides an energy-generating quality that is unique to The Conjured Saint spells and magickal products.
The ritual blending and blessing of the oils is a traditional ceremony carried out amidst powerful magickal, holy, and religious relics, an altar of cascading crystal waterfalls, the elements of fire, water, earth, and air, and otherworldly intervention that completes the process. The Conjured Saint leaves no stone unturned when formulating our oils, so that you may reap the benefits of divine Earth magick.
